    Celeste, the ‘architecture’ of this is truly amazing … that curled structure is so perfectly formed… Amazing for nature and that you captured it in every bit of its detail…the petal and the light in the upper right of the frame are equally as interesting… I would say this is an image that totally displays your skill and artistry as a photographer.. the way you interpret florals and related images is unique unto you…

  • Katherine, thank you! It was the architecture of the curl that captivated me.
